About Kingsdale Foundation School
Welcome to Kingsdale Foundation School
Champions of High Achievement with the Top Performing Individual Students at Both A Level and GCSE!
‘This popular school is a harmonious environment where pupils learn how to be successful in modern Britain.’ Ofsted 2017
Kingsdale is an Outstanding School in every area (Ofsted 2017) that provides exceptionally rich opportunities to challenge students of all abilities including providing options in Year 9 to study Triple Science, Latin, Economics and Psychology and the opportunity to study two languages from Year7. Kingsdale attracts many able students and operates a condensed or accelerated Key Stage 3 programme of study to meet the particular needs and aspirations of all of the students and their families. The school offers a wide variety of academic subjects including 4 or 5 optional courses selected by each child in addition to enrichment activities every day.
‘The curriculum is broad and balanced, supporting pupils’ outstanding outcomes because of the chance pupils have to be successful in a range of subjects.’ Ofsted 2017
In 2017 Kingsdale accomplished a unique achievement with, almost certainly, the most successful students at both A Level and GCSE in the Country with Elba Feo achieving a phenomenal 18A*s or better in her GCSEs and Jacob Lundie-Fallon achieving an amazing 5A*s in his A Level exams!
Last year Kingsdale ranked as a top non-selective school for attainment at Key Stage 4 and for the second successive year was ranked in the top 4% for progress at Key Stage 5. Remarkably, Kingsdale has produced the top student in the country at GCSE for at least 3 years out of the last 4 and possibly 4 out of 4! The school has one of the best pupil to teacher ratios of any secondary school in London and average class sizes are approximately 20 across all subjects.
‘Pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding because of the care and attention that staff pay to making pupils’ time in school productive and safe.’ Ofsted 2017
Kingsdale is a dynamic, exceptionally popular and progressive school that has invested £30m to develop an award-winning educational learning environment. In our specialist academic Sixth Form, students study a combination of respected traditional, performing arts and creative A Levels, the Baccalaureate in addition to alternative high value Level 3 courses. Average class sizes are approximately ten in the Sixth Form. We also pride ourselves on excellent links to the best Higher Education institutions in the world – a residential trip to Harvard and Yale in the USA is organised annually.
Students have access to iPads, PCs, Apple Macs, laptops, wireless technology and a Virtual Learning Environment. Kingsdale has also introduced one to one mobile technology so that students benefit from having the opportunity to use an iPad safely for educational purposes, as appropriate, in school and at home.
Subsidised excursions to amazing destinations such as Malaysia, Namibia, Brazil, the USA and the French Alps are organised every year.
‘Pupils’ time in school is enriched by the wide variety of opportunities they are offered in which they can develop and explore skills that match their aspirations.’ Ofsted 2017
